If you're a "Fixer Upper" fan, then you know Joanna and Chip Gaines are the masterminds behind some of the best kitchen remodels on television. From shiplap to subway tile, they've pretty much seen and done it all when it comes to kitchen design. 

Joanna Gaines loves to cook and even has her own set of cookbooks, so kitchen remodels really are at the heart of every "Fixer Upper" home. The Gaines' style is also classic and timeless, so their kitchen designs are always on point. They mix and match different elements to create unique spaces that are both beautiful and practical. Design queen Joanna also isn't afraid to mix up the style of their kitchen remodels, even creating an Industrial kitchen in one episode of "Fixer Upper" and a French Country kitchen in the next (via HGTV). Chip and Joanna popularized some design trends like shiplap (via HGTV), which became so popular that now, Insider claims the wood wall technique is on its way out.

It's amazing to see the creative ways that the Gaines transform old, run down homes into amazing living spaces. If you need a dose of Chip and Jo, here's how you can watch every episode of "Fixer Upper." Now, let's get some kitchen inspiration from the best in the business, from "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Jo.

'Fixer Upper' timeless kitchen remodel

"Fixer Upper" featured a luxury kitchen remodel with a timeless design during Season 5, Episode 4, "Historic Home for a New Family." Chip and Joanna Gaines created a jaw-dropping kitchen remodel, transforming a 1927 Tudor home for new parents Courtney and Joey Scrivano, per HGTV. In the Scrivano kitchen, Joanna went all out. The "Fixer Upper" luxe kitchen combined classic elements with bold statements and beautiful cabinets. The checkboard floor and vintage door are heavenly, and the modern kitchen is still consistent with the style of the historic house. Joanna and Chip say their favorite "Fixer Upper" homes are often the ones that challenge them, and the Scrivano's Tudor did not disappoint!

Joanna explained how she created the elegant kitchen remodel on the Magnolia website. "I went with neutral grey cabinets and bold checkered floors in this kitchen, I incorporated warm wood accents [...] and rich brass finishing touches," the "Fixer Upper" star said. Joanna noted that the different finishes kept the kitchen balanced. The design queen cautioned to stay moderate with bold accents. Joanna said to only "select one or two bold statements for the space so it can really be the highlight of the room."

If you're looking for a kitchen remodel that will stand the test of time, take inspiration from this "Fixer Upper" kitchen from Season 5. Go for classic elements with bold statements and beautiful cabinets. You can't go wrong with a timeless design.

Horse barn transforms into a sleek industrial kitchen

Only Chip and Joanna Gaines could design a sleek, beautiful kitchen in an old horse barn. The Gaines created this cool industrial-style kitchen in Episode 8 of "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home." In the episode, Eddie and Lili asked Chip and Jo "to transform their old horse barn into a home for their oldest son" (via Magnolia). They wanted an industrial-style kitchen with a lot of storage and room for entertaining.

The Magnolia website has photos of the cozy kitchen that previously contained chickens, and according to the website, Chip and Joanna added white oak cabinets with plank doors to set the kitchen's character. The "Fixer Upper" stars added floating shelves and zellige tile to bring a bit of a cottage feel to the room as well. Zellige tiles bring a hand-made vibe to the space. 

Joanna also kept the industrial style strong in the kitchen design with a black quartzite countertop, matte black finishes, and steel cabinet pulls. The island is what gives the young man a place for casual entertaining while providing storage. This makes the former horse barn, now kitchen practical and chic.

'Fixer Upper' kitchen with French flair and faux beams

This "Fixer Upper" kitchen remodel features French flair and faux beams for days. Chip and Joanna Gaines revamped a tired kitchen for Brittany and Andrew in "Fixer Upper" Season 4, Episode 1, "Dog Loving Dream House." On the Magnolia blog, Jo explained why she chose a French-inspired style. "Brittany studied abroad in France, so she has a soft spot for French culture." 

The Magnolia blog post also noted how Brittany and Andrew's kitchen screamed 1980s before the remodel, but after the Gaines worked their magic, the kitchen is now a timeless space with white cabinets, white countertops, and a beautiful backsplash. Don't get us started on the beams, too. The faux beams look like real wood, but are all an illusion — and a timeless and affordable one at that. 

The heart of this home is luxurious and inviting, with some extra help from the Joanna-approved paint colors, which makes this kitchen remodel gorgeous and practical for the couple who also happen to have two dogs who are very much part of the family.

Modern kitchen remodel with black paint and concrete

One of the reasons so many fans adore Chip and Joanna Gaines is that they create a wide range of unique kitchen designs. The "Fixer Upper" stars might be known for shiplap and subway tile, but in Season 4, Episode 7, "Traditional Goes Ultra Modern," the renovation wizards show a new side. The Gaines created a stunning kitchen with a black palette and modern accents for Dean and Brittany. According to HGTV, the couple asked Chip and Jo to update their country home with a modern style, and in the episode, Chip nicknamed the property the "Pick a Door" house. This turned out to be one of the iconic "Fixer Upper" homes.

Before Chip and Jo took on this kitchen, there were mismatched cabinets, bad lighting, and a popcorn ceiling. HGTV reported that the existing kitchen had a big footprint, but the layout was awkward. To fix all of this, Chip and Jo installed black lower cabinets, open shelving, and gray concrete countertops for a sleek modern look that mixed style and function perfectly. Realtor.com reported Dean and Brittany later put the "Fixer Upper" home on the market for $565,000 in 2017, and it appeared to sell.

A dark and modern kitchen might not be for everyone, but it's definitely a showstopper. The sleek design contains practical elements like plenty of counter space and storage. If you're considering a kitchen remodel, this might be the perfect option for you. 

'Fixer Upper: Welcome Home' storybook kitchen remodel

Joanna and Chip Gaines created a storybook cottage kitchen during an episode of "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home." In Season 1, Episode 7, "From Beach to Woodsy Cottage," the Gaines "peel back the layers" of a 1930s home, bringing the kitchen back to its roots. On the Magnolia blog, Joanna explained that she designed this cottage kitchen remodel for Kim, a Magnolia Network employee who moved to Texas from California. 

Kim bought the 1930s cottage with tons of charm, but it had been poorly remodeled. Chip and Jo took on the kitchen, giving it a farmhouse, cottage style. Joanna told the Magnolia blog, "Now Kim's cottage is filled with light, color, and a lot of natural textures that make her home feel fresh and updated while still capturing the nostalgia and charm of the original house." House Beautiful ranked this episode toward the bottom of the "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" Season 1, but we loved it!

The Magnolia blog outlines how the Gaines moved the kitchen to the home's original location, put tongue-and-groove panels on the walls, and shiplap on the ceiling. They painted the kitchen cabinets a rich green and installed luxurious Carrara marble countertops. The natural light is beautiful, and Chip and Jo finished the look with brass hardware and cottage-style lights. You can download Joanna's sourcebook for this dreamy kitchen remodel here. We don't know too many details about the "Fixer Upper: Welcome Home" Season 2 release, but we can't wait to see more stunning kitchens.
